Kermit the Frog and Steve Martin Face Off With Banjos: Wednesday is Saved!

There aren’t too many celebrity banjo players in this world, so when the top two get together for a duet we want to share it with the world! Near-Muppet Steve Martin faces off with Kermit the Frog for a rendition of “Dueling Banjos”…which has somehow never happened before? The last time Steve brought bluegrass to the Muppets it was with a jug band that was not Emmet Otter’s, so the rendition below makes for an epic moment in the history banjo-based music and felt.
